BEE RESEARCH FUNDING
In 1921 a small group of beekeepers put forth effort to create the Oregon State Beekeepers Association for mutual learning and enjoyment. The organization keeps abreast of legislative issues at the local, state, and national level.
As part of its outreach, OSBA funded and supported the creation of the Oregon Master Beekeeper Program. The three tier program is unique in that at the Apprentice Level, each student is assigned a Mentor to complete the circle of learning from didactic to practical.
The object of the Oregon State Beekeepers Association's VIRTUAL Auction is funding bee research. In past years an 'in person' auction transpired. In 2020 the auction has shifted to a VIRTUAL Again this year, 2021, the auction will be VIRTUAL. All monies go to advance research.
